The University of Castilla-La Mancha (UCLM) recently published, on its Transparency web portal, the job placement data of its graduates in 2015 and 2016. Four years after graduating, Medicine graduates had the best data of all UCLM graduates. The degree had practically full employment, with 98% job placement. And the best average salary of all degrees, with an average annual income of 40,400 euros.
The data is similar in the two reference years of the study published by the UCLM on its web portal. These are graduates in June 2015 and in the same month of 2016. And their employment situation in 2019 and 2020 is analyzed. The data has been extracted from the official report of the Ministry of Education on the employment situation of university graduates in the whole country.
In addition, the study also indicates that only two percent of UCLM Medicine graduates were working as self-employed. Most of them worked as employees. Of them, 44% had an indefinite contract. It should be remembered that Medicine, at UCLM, is offered on the Albacete and Ciudad Real campuses.

In this case, the percentage of workers with indefinite contracts stood, for those who had graduated four years earlier, at just over 28%.
